Understand, I think the Epyx Fast load runs about 95% of programs.

I disconnected the Epyx Fast load and tried a normal copy of the Bedlam disk I got from the web site Remember, using OpenCBM (Dos mode). 2nd, I Then formatted the disk and set OpenCBM to only copy what is shown in the BAM. 3rd, I Then set OpenCBM to copy the whole disk using serial1 (Slow mode). 

All three copy's lock after the run command on the C64C. 

In the emulator after the run command is issued the border areas would scroll colors and then the crack screen would open.  

I'm going to swap drives (PC 1541 II > 64, 64 1541 II > PC) when I get home today and see if anything changes. If not I think I need to find another C64 to test with. Thoughts?
